Vertual is a successful spin out company from the University of Hull.
The Company developed Virtual Environment Radiotherapy Training or “VERT” software, and asked Virtalis to design and supply the integrated visualisation hardware. VERT is already revolutionising the way in which radiotherapists are trained.
VERT is a virtual environment of a radiotherapy treatment room. Through captivating graphics and life size visualisations, VERT offers an innovative training platform for radiotherapy training for students, nurses and existing staff. Unlike previous training methods, it does not tie up the precious resources of radiotherapy equipment.
2008 saw a nationwide programme of VERT equipment being installed throughout England by Vertual and Virtalis, funded by the Department of Health. This technology is now being made available to the rest of the world, with interest coming from around the globe.
